Did you ever make it to the dyno or rolling videos?

Insane build, I almost didn't check in because the title read "LS-2" instead of LS2 but something told me to just peak in to see if it was what I thought it was...I always feel a little funny about RWD WRX and EVO conversions...I guess because AWD is one of the reasons I like them...either way an LS2 in just about anything this small is going to be certified badass regardless. I can't wait to see this thing rolling...might have to make room for some serious rubber to get that power to the ground.

Lol. Thanks bro. Don't get me wrong, I love suby's. If i had to do it over again, I would have did a hybrid with and ej25. About the rubber, if I keep the car, it will have a ford 8.8 in it this fall or winter. It will have a ladder bar setup and I would fit 10.5 slicks no problem as the coilover would be relocated to the center of the car

I wouldn't have done it myself, but mad props for the fab work to say the least. What does it do to weight distribution? I assume it adds to the front, but do you gain anything front or rear from the replacement axles?

I added 250 pounds to the front of the car. The transmission is lighter than the factory one. My guess is 60-65 percent of the weight is in the front. I took the sway bar out on the front so it would transfer more weight to the rear on take off. Surprisingly, the car handles great.

This is a walk around vid because I'm trying to sell the car. I'm not trying to sell it in this thread. Just letting you know why there is a lot of walking around it.
